This week US citizens observed National Human Trafficking Awareness Day through acts of education, legislation, and enforcement; whilst, around the world, other people highlighted or tackled this global problem in their own countries.
According to an annual report on human trafficking released by the US State Department in June last year, 27 million men, women and children are exploited through human trafficking. Worldwide, at least two million children are estimated to be trafficked victims of the sex trade; and, in military conflicts, it is not uncommon for children to be forced to bear arms. In releasing the report last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton highlighted the importance of international cooperation in addressing trafficking, and cultural issues associated with it.
Brown, orange and red are source countries, while light blue and dark blue countries are destinations for victims of human trafficking.

The Protocols also recognize the unique status and rights of children.
Not ALL human trafficing is for sex, although it would seem that most is. If not for sex, what are the other reasons for the demand for this human supply? Illegal adoption? Power? Laziness? What can be done to overcome the DEMAND, besides public physical castration of those caught and convicted of sex trafficing?
If the person buying or renting a human against thier will is a male ....CASTRATION!!!!!!!!! if it is a woman ??????Im against genital mutilation but if a women is raping a child then OFF WITH THIER ..........peace..Rula
Call for castration; say you're against genital mutilation.
An extreme practice indeed, but the French did consider it; I'm not sure if they're unique among Westerners on that.
EDIT: I took a look back over the article; seems the French are far from unique.
there is a great book on amazon by new Author Paul Dubal called "Crimes Against Humanity" that is a great fictional reading on this topic. Very faced paced and based in Canada with ties to ROmania. Does a great job showing how us in western world can contribute to this issue by turing a blind eye.
